Scope and Contents

This collection consists mostly of correspondence to Vera Allen from her mother, Ethel Hamilton of Los Angeles, and her husband, William Allen. William writes Vera of his experiences as a sailor aboard the U. S. S. Medusa, and counsels her about financial issues she is facing alone during the Depression. Vera's mother writes to her of financial troubles she faces, and of troubles in her living situation. Vera apparently lived with her mother in Los Angeles for some time while William was away. Also included are several letters from Vera to her sister Margaret, and several to William from Vera and other family members.
